    As you see that is very similar choice: red or green - doesn't matter in both cases you will run a blob .

      Seriously people, how do you expect your hardware to work without reporting the bugs? you don't want to cooperate with the devs and everyone else?
      At least do some tiny effort...

        Try the firmware update before the blob: it';s a much smaller download, and the open driver is now beating the blob in some workloads to boot.
        A newly-released card usually does NOT work in pre-existing Linux installs right away, it taking anywhere from a couple months (new minor change generation) to a year or more (major architectural change) to get them online. That's why I normally advise people buying video cards to use with open drivers to get last year's AMD card unless the newer card they are considering has been getting good results for others. Never buy new hardware blind for Linux, used computers/parts haven't had much of that sort of trouble because by the time it's in the dumpster all the drivers have been out a long time.
